Arminianism North America - - - - 1994 *LINK* Hexham, Irving. Concise Dictionary of Religion. Carol Stream, USA: InterVarsity Press (1994). (v. online 6 Oct. 1999) "ARMINIANISM: a general term embracing the teachings of Jacobus ARMINIUS [Dutch, 1560-1609]. The THEOLOGICAL views of Arminius and his followers were summed up in five points which were designed to counter the prevailing CALVINIST ORTHODOXY of his day. They are: (1) GOD from all ETERNITY predestined to ETERNAL LIFE those of whom He foresaw would remain steadfast in FAITH to their end; (2) CHRIST died for all mankind, not only the elect; (3) through free will Man cooperates in his CONVERSION; (4) humans may RESIST divine GRACE; (5) humans may FALL from divine grace. At the SYNOD OF DORT the Arminian teachings were condemned as heretical by orthodox CALVINISTS. Today, Arminianism is the major theological force among North American EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS. "

"Calvinism was based on Calvin's extreme form of predestination... which held that individuals were destined by God, even before the Creation, to be saved or damned according to His plan... Protestants who opposed Calvin and believed in universal salvation are sometimes called Arminians for Dutch theologian Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609). "

Revised 1995, 1997. "Arminianism: Note: Arminian is not to be confused with Armenia and/or Armenian... Arminianism is... generally accredited to the sixteenth century theologian--Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609 AD), and his followers... Arminius concluded that some of Calvin's tenets were indefensible. However, in rejecting the excesses of Calvinism, and in the attempt to construct his own system of beliefs, Arminius drew upon both Semi-Pelagianism and the Bible to create a new theological hybrid--subsequently dubbed Arminianism.

In contrast to the Brahmo Samaj it attracted some grass-root support, primarily in the Punjab and the United Provinces (Uttar Pradesh).... In 1892 the Arya Samaj split into conservative and progressive groups. While retaining a substantial membership in Northern India, the Arya Samaj shared with Brahmo Samaj a fatal weakness: it rejected image veneration, avatars and yogic meditation, all of which form an essential part of mainstream Hinduism.
